Our Science

Technologies for Sensitivity Relief

Our scientists have identified and formulated a number of specific technologies for inclusion in the Sensodyne range - for example -potassium nitrate, NovaMin and stannous fluoride - to help relieve tooth sensitivity. These technologies work to either soothe the nerves inside sensitive teeth, or to shield and protect the exposed dentine.
